About the event

Makers Mill and the Governor Wentworth Arts Council (GWAC), two local organizations with a shared mission of fostering creativity, are collaborating on the Upcycled Fashion Show:  an event that is designed to celebrate ingenuity, community spirit, and environmental awareness. The date of the show correlates with Earth Day celebrations around the world!

Upcycling takes worn or used materials and transforms the old into something new, and typically, more valuable. The Upcycled Fashion Show encourages participants to create upcycled fashion designs crafted from recycled or repurposed materials, either in teams or individually. Each design must incorporate upcycled elements. 

To get you in the upcycling spirit, the Makers Mill is hosting several workshops in the weeks leading up to the show that focus on repurposing materials. You can learn more and register for the workshops on the Makers Mill website

Participation in the Upcycled Fashion Show is free and open to everyone. GWAC and Makers Mill encourage kids, teens, adults, family groups, friend groups, and everyone to else to participate! To register, fill out the required fields and email 1-2 images of your design to Your registration is not considered complete until we have received your images. When registering, all participants must agree to the Release of Claims, Indemnity, and Hold Harmless Agreement, please read it carefully. Registration closes April 14, 2023.

We will provide dinner refreshments for participants backstage. We will also be taking pictures and have people available if you need help with anything during the event. We can't wait to see what you create!

Upcycled Fashion Show FAQ:

Q. Can I register more than one design? 

A. Absolutely, but you must have different models for each design. Please fill out the registration form for each design. 

Q. Can I register with just one upcycled element, like a scarf, vest, or hat?

Q. Can I show the same upcycled design I showed last year?

A. You can, but we encourage you to switch it up!

A. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate sales at the show. If individuals reach out to you after the show, go for it.

Q. Can I get help figuring out how to make my upcycled idea?

A. We are happy to help! Please contact us and we'll help you troubleshoot. The workshops at the Makers Mill are also amazing for building your skills.
